Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen

»H::--:':;: : -Jmtiam 

Patricia Wenner Reisinger has 
been named director of Develop- 
ment and Alumni Services at 
University of Wisconsin Stout, 
Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen 
announced. Reisinger was 
associate director of Development 
at UW-Stout before leaving in 
1989 to become associate director 
of Development at Northwestern 
University Medical School, 

At Northwestern, Reisinger 
was responsible for gift acquisi- 
tion from alumni and friends, 
earmarked for supporting strate- 
gic priorities of the medical, 
school. She was also charged 
with advising, cultivating and 
tracking prospects; planning 
special events for the medical 
school; and assisting various 
departments in other develop- 
ment activities. 

In her new position at UW- 
Stout, Reisinger will serve as the 
chief development officer, over- 
seeing all fund-raising activities 
and providing executive services 
to the Stout University Founda- 
tion Inc. 

"Pat Reisinger has an excel- 
lent background in professional 
development and alumni work," 
Sorensen said. "She did an 
outstanding job here as associate 
development director and she 
has shown superior performance 
in her position at Northwestern 
University. Pat has established 
many valuable contacts with our

As we enter into our Centen- 
nial year, we continue our 
celebration of a truly outstanding 
university. I doubt whether 
Senator Stout ever envisioned, in 
1891, the remarkable success 
this university would achieve by 
1991. He launched an institu- 
tional enterprise that has had a 
remarkable impact on the region, 
the state, and, in many cases, the 

If we ask what makes UW- 
Stout unique and successful, it 
boils down to a single factor. 
People. Our people, with their 
dedication to their profession and 
to the school, make the differ- 
ence. For many of them, that 
dedication is characterized by 
one important distinction: their 
voluntary spirit. 

Volunteerism is deeply rooted 
in American culture, and even a 
cursory examination of our rich 
past reveals that the success of 
our churches, communities, 
political parties and educational 
systems has historically de- 
pended on people volunteering

alumni throughout the country. 
In addition, as an alumna of 
UW-Stout, she has a firm under- 
standing and appreciation of the 
university's traditions and 

Reisinger holds a bachelor's 
and a master's degree from UW- 
Stout. Prior to initially joining 
UW-Stout -in 1982, she taught 
home economics, clothing and 
textiles, consumer economics, 
family living, U.S. history and 
English at public schools in 
several Wisconsin locations. She 
has been active in numerous 
organizations including the 
Council for Advancement and 
Support of Education and the 
American Association of Univer- 
sity Women. 

their time, energy and resources. 
Here at UW-Stout that is cer- 
tainly no exception. I am continu- 
ally impressed with the more 
than 200 students who annually 
volunteer 4,000+ hours to tutor 
other students. For those alumni 
that were similarly involved as 
students, your efforts were most 

The alumni of UW-Stout 
further reinforce this great spirit 
by responding positively when- 
ever we call upon you for sup- 

We need your continued 
support, whether it is to serve on 
our board, organize gatherings or 
donate to the Foundation. You 
are part of this fine school and its 
great tradition, and we look 
forward to a long and valued 
relationship. m 

Dear Chancellor Sorensen, 

On behalf of the 40,000 plus 
Stout alumni, I extend our 
sincere appreciation for the speed 
with which you moved forward in 
filling the director of Foundation 
and Alumni Services position. 
The precarious position of 
having both this position and the 
alumni services position open 
concerned many of us. The 
Foundation and Alumni Associa- 
tion are integral to the 
university's mission and success. 

Each of us is aware that the 
Foundation board, Alumni board, 
the Foundation and Alumni 
Office staff and annual fund 
director Denise Sedlak did an 
outstanding job maintaining our 
many programs. These groups, 
and Denise especially, should 
receive your highest appreciation 
for the work they did during the 

As a final note, each of us can 
be very proud of the fact that the 
director's position drew several 
topnotch candidates from across 
the nation. It is an outstanding 
reflection on Stout. I commend 
you for your personal involve- 
ment in ensuring the speed with 
which the position was filled and 
the selection^ one of the finest 
people I have ever had the 
privilege to work with, particu- 
larly as we move forward into 
Stout's second century.

Presidential Greetings 


Randy Pickering 

It is an honor to accept the 
presidency of the Stout Alumni 
Association. It is particularly 
special as Stout moves into its 
second century. Each of us can 
feel a unique pride. Stout's 
worldwide reputation has been 
earned by the dedication of our 
faculty, quality of our staff, 
foresight of our administration 
and accomplishments of our 

Looking over the past two 
years, the university, the Foun- 
dation and the Alumni Associa- 
tion have moved forward effec- 
tively through significant 
changes— a new chancellor, a new 
director of Foundation and 
Alumni Services and, soon, a new 
alumni director. On behalf of all 
alumni, I would like to thank 
outgoing president Ann Yurcisin 
and annual fund director Denise 
Sedlak for the exemplary job 
they have done maintaining our 
quality alumni programs during 
this time of change. 

We wish former Foundation 
director Dave Williams the very 
best at Bipon College and are 
extremely pleased to welcome 
Pat Eeisinger back'to Stout as 
our new director. Anyone who 
has ever known Pat knows the 

professionalism, enthusiasm and 
dedication she brings to the job. 

Looking ahead to the next few 
years, a great deal of energy will 
be focused on recognizing our 
first 100 years and positioning 
ourselves to meet the challenges 
of the second century. I strongly 
urge each of you to take this 
unique opportunity to return to 
the campus and be part of one of 
our upcoming events highlighted 
in this issue of the Outlook. For 
those of you who have not been 
back for several years, you are in 
for some major surprises. But 
rest assured, the memories are 
still here and as deep as ever. 

I enjoyed meeting so many of 
you last month at homecoming 
and look forward to meeting 
many more of you over the next 
two years.

Ann Yurcisin 

Dear Alumni: 

You are members of an ex- 
traordinary Alumni Association! 
In the past two years, I have had 
the opportunity to meet with 
alums from all over the United 
States. What an outstanding 
group of individuals! 

I have found that no matter 
when they graduated, what their 
major was or what they are doing 
now, alumni are actively involved 
and supportive of UW-Stout. I 
have seen this so often at alumni 
reunions and gatherings. The 
turnout for these events has been 
tremendous, and sometimes it's 
surprising to see how far people 
have traveled just to be there. 

As a staff member on campus, 
I have taken the opportunity to 
attend Stout's two-day annual 
career fair where over 250 
companies were represented. 
Over half of these recruiters were 
Stout graduates returning 
because they KNOW Stout 
students have the qualifications 
that they are seeking. 


At events such as freshman 
orientation, Family Weekend and 
commencement, Ihave had the 
opportunity to meet with parents 
of Stout students who are them- 
selves alumni, truly making 
Stout a family tradition. How 
fascinating it has been to talk to 
successful alums and to hear 
where their careers have taken 
them. Inevitably they will at- 
tribute their accomplishments to 
their Stout education and the 
support they received from 
faculty and staff. 

I have also seen how alumni 
have been supportive of Stout in 
other ways, such as generously 
responding to phonathons and 
donating equipment and dollars 
so that Stout can continue its 
educational commitment. At a 
recent reception where 190 
scholarships were awarded to 
Stout students, I found that a 
majority of these scholarships 
were established by alumni or to 
honor alumni, making it possible 
for our current students to 
continue their education, becom- 
ing future alumni themselves. 

How gratifying it has been to 
witness this involvement and 
commitment of alumni to the 
University of Wisconsin-Stout! It 
is-these experiences which have 
made me feel honored to be part 
of this network of individuals and 
privileged to have served as the 
president of the Stout Alumni 
Association these past two years. 
Thank you!

Building The Foundation 

The Stout 

The Stout Foundation scholar- 
ship program began in 1963 
when concerned faculty and 
alumni sold Homecoming buttons 
to raise $200 for two scholarships 
for Stout students. In the past 
five years, the program has 
grown to assist over 1,190 
students with more than 

The growth of the scholarship 
program is directly related to the 
generosity of faculty, alumni and 
friends who wish to help Stout 
students more readily afford the 
ever rising cost of a college 
education. Many of these indi- 
viduals have created the en- 
dowed funds, from which the 
income provides the scholarships 
being awarded today. 

Many more students, however, 
are facing financial pressures 
which additional scholarships 
could help ease. If you are 
interested in establishing a 
scholarship fund or know some- 
one who may be interested, 
please let us know. Simply

Chancellor Sorensen and Tony Gulliekson BS '65, MS '66 get acquainted a 
the July reunion for the classes of 64, '65 and '66. 

N. A "Tony" Gulliekson BS 
'65, MS '66 called the Foundation 
office in the spring of 1990 and 
said, "I want to make Stout the 
beneficiary of a life insurance 
policy. What do I need to know, 
and how can I encourage others 
to think of doing the same?" 
When we learned that Tony 
would be on campus in July for 
the 25th reunion of the classes of 
'64, '65 and '66, we asked if he 
would share his story and his 
vision with others. 


Tony came to Stout in 1961 
because Walter Netterblad Dip. 
'26 and William Martin '59, his 
high school printing teachers, 
told him about Stout and gave 
him tremendous encourage- 
ment to attend Stout. Tony came 
and received a bachelor's degree 
in industrial education in 1965, 
married Diana Kadinger (also a 
'65 Stout grad), and remained at 
Stout while Diana got a second 
bachelor's degree and he received 
his master's in industrial educa- 
tion. Tony went on to work as an 
instructor of graphic arts at 
Winona State University, during 
which time he saw the need for a 
doctorate and began that work at 
the University of Northern 
Colorado in 1969. While there he 
received a $3,000 fellowship from 
the Graphic Arts Technical 
Foundation, took additional 
courses at Stout, accepted a 
position at California State 
University-Fresno and completed 
his Ed. D. While at Stout Tony 
held a number of offices in the 
Stout Typographical Society, was 
very active in Alpha Phi Omega, 
a national service fraternity, and 
was part of the Tower staff and 
business manager for the 


"I wanted to encourage others 
the way Wally Netterblad and 
Bill Martin encouraged me. The 
25th reunion in July and a 25th 
wedding anniversary in August 
got me thinking. Where am I? 
Where have I been? What does 
the future hold? And the more I 
thought, the more I began to 

appreciate what Stout had done 
for me. Yes, I had worked hard at 
Stout, but I got a lot from that 
work. My time at Stout changed 
me and was instrumental in 
every success that I enjoy. I owed 
Stout, but what could I do now 
with children still in school? How 
could I repay Stout and encour- 
age others? I knew I couldn't 
give a major gift now, and then I 
thought of life insurance. Why 
not make Stout the beneficiary of 
a policy? It's a promise. Why not 
make this promise-Stout has to 
go on and needs money to do 
that. I want my money to be a 
part of what keeps Stout going. I 
want to be a link in that chain." 

Tony officially became a link 
in that chain in July when he 
filed with the Foundation a copy 
of the insurance policy. 

His advice to current students 
is "Stout is offering you a won- 
derful opportunity to succeed in 
your personal and professional 
life-use it!!!" <

Adventures in Innovation 
The First 100 Years 

In observance of its centennial, UW-Stout is publishing a set of 
three books on the history of the institution and the life of its 
founder, James, Huff Stout. 

"James Huff Stout: Maker of Models" is an in-depth biog- 
raphy of the founder of the school. Author Dwight Agnew, professor 
emeritus, compiled bits and pieces of information about Senator Stout 
from newspapers, official documents, a handful of acquaintances and 
other local sources. The book examines Stout's various civic interests: 
improving rural life, service in politics and business, and education. 

"Reminiscences: An Anthology of Oral History" grew out 
of a speakers series offered at the university during 1987 and 1 988. Each 
month a person who had been active at the institution was chosen to 
speak, to provide a variety of points of view on Stout's history and 
development. Included are excerpts from presentations by Bev and Bob 
Spinti, Bill Amthor and Marv Kufahl, Dwight Agnew, Norm Zieman, 

Eva Rogers, Bob Melrose, Jerry Buckley, Betty Viens, Frank. Belisle, and Eleanor 
Johnson. The work was edited by Dan Riordan, a UW-Stout English professor. 

"Interpreting The Dream: A Stout History," traces the development of 
the institution fromits f oundingin 1891 to today, through the actions and philosophies 
of its founder, presidents and chancellors. Through text, photographs and a 
chronology, the book recounts James Stout's gift of a building, equipment and staff 
to provide manual training for secondary school students, and how that school 
grew into UW-Stout. 

Offered as a boxed set titled "Adventures in Innovation - The First 100 
Years," the books provide a concise history of the founding and development of the
